@sunsetmoth Hi there, currently the bot checks whether there is a caption for the media. It doesn't know if the text with it describes the media or not.

Do you think there is a way we could improve it?

Also if you you don't wanna any more messages you can leave unfollowed the bot. Sorry for any spam!

@jannamark Ah ok, I have manually unfollowed you so will see if that sorts it out.

@jannamark Looks like the follow request to your account is pending, if you accept the follow I will start messaging you!

Let me know if this sounds wrong.

Hi everyone, just realised that I haven't been following people - I've changed my internal wiring to fix that.

You should now get a follow. If anything that's unexpected happens, please let me know.

@KendanKip There's a bot for that. @PleaseCaption. Follow it and it will DM you when your non-DM posts have images without captions.

@PleaseCaption is a good bot - if you forget to add photo captions, it'll DM you immediately so you can delete and re-draft!

🔔 To get started:

1. Follow me and I'll start to follow you back
2. Every time you forget to add a text description to an image I will send you a reminder.

Don't want reminders anymore Unfollow me!

You can add a text description to images on most clients.

Here's a guide on how to write description (or 'alt text'): www2.le.ac.uk/webcentre/plone/
